This course is designed for beginners who want to enter in the world of computer network. Beginners will learn to understand the basics of how data is sent and received in a computer network and how small computer networks are created. People who are not familiar with computer network and want to understand how computer networks actually work will also enjoy this course. This course introduce a variety of concepts, practice activities and simulations that help build the learner’s skills and understanding of computer networking. You will learn basic networking concepts, various networking devices such as switch, router etc., configure various networking scenarios using packet tracer simulation and how to apply IP addressing schemes. At the end, you will be able to build small networks and its troubleshooting. Previous networking knowledge is not required.
